Hey thanks for the info on my guy from petco. I am not 100% sure, but it sort of looks like maybe his fins already are showing a teeny bit of improvement. I do have Stress Coat, I just bought it last week. Do I use Stress Coat instead of Seachem Prime or do I use both?
I do see what you mean with your photo of a tail biter.
Ehh, that's crazy about the water. I change my water whenever it tests the second color on my chart, in other words, if it tests .25 I change it immediately! i don't understand how I still have problems and some people I know keep unfiltered gallon or 1/2 gallon bowls and their betta has never gotten sick. WTF? I know someone like that who even forgets to feed it for weeks sometimes .. and it seems their fish has been fine for 2 years, meanwhile I have had 2 platies die already, and now my Purplius is sick. Or maybe the platies made everyone sick even though I separated them and medicated them, sometimes animals seem to recover and secretly are still spreading disease. Who knows!
